Worst helmets in the NFL

    Watching the Miami-Pittsburgh game last night, and I couldn't help but notice that every time they showed a close up of a Dolphin that it looked like there was glitter in the white paint. I couldn't help but look for it everytime, but it was there. Drove me up the wall. Made the orange and the aqua look even more – I wanna say tacky but that's not the right word – effeminate? I don't know. It definitely did not say football team to me. What is wrong with even a high gloss white? why did they have to make it look like someone spread that glitter shit on the helmets that some chicks puts on their chests?

    What do you think are the worst helmets?

    I've always like the Cheifs' helmets because. The red top with the white facemask looks great.

    P.S. Wolverines have the best ones in College Football. Hail to the victors!

    The pattern was originally designed in Princeton for the Tigers so the quarterback could better distinguish his wide receivers at a quick glance. Then I think it was like a year after they were designed the athletic director or coach or somebody got hired on by Michigan and he brought the pattern over with him, just changed the colours to blue and maise.

    I don't think the helmet is racist, the name definitley, but it's not like they've got chief wahoo on their helmets, the portrait is at the least a respctable picture, much along the lines of the Chicago Blackhawks.

    True. Imagine if there were teams named Black or White skins.

    Clearly the Delaware Blue Hens have a superior helmet design.

    ;D

    Let me throw in a vote for the Tennessee Titans. Their logo looks like something an NBA team would come up with.

    Worst helmets? Rematch of a previous Super Bowl: Titans and Rams.
